Since then, naval air power (including missiles) has been the preeminent weapon of the world’s fleets. William I had continuous trans-channel ferry needs during his reign, after the first crucial shipment of an army to Pevensey in September 1066; and he, William II, and Henry I may have made some 40 Channel crossings in all. Sailing warships in the latter half of the seventeenth century had manning establishments that required around one man to three tonnes displacement while eighteenth century warships normally had around one man to four tonnes.

In early history the armed men of a tribe or town put to sea in such large boats or ships as might be available to give battle to enemies similarly equipped or to raid territory from the sea.Even if a nation under bombardment by numerous thermonuclear weapons could continue to maintain a navy, such a war would happen too fast to permit sea power to exercise any of its traditional functions. Blair's The Essential Civil War: A Handbook to the Battles, Armies, Navies and Commanders (McFarland, 2006).

Total displacement (in 1,000 tonnes) of warships owned by state navies or, in the case of Spain, on long-term charter by the states. Spencer Tucker, his fellow contributors, and ABC-CLIO should be congratulated for this important contribution.For example, the pursuit and capture of enemy merchant vessels required the kind of ship that early became known as a cruiser. Christmas celebrations during the Second World War often had to be scaled down or adjusted as restrictions and shortages took their toll.
